I spent most of the day entirely alone, and I really needed it. I slept in, had some morning tea, exchanged an email or two, went for a walk, noticed more of the fall colors and can I just say that watching the leaves fall is so peaceful? I met Lisa for an hour at Peet’s and it was so good to finally see her that one hour was not nearly enough. After Peet’s I walked some more, took some photos of the leaves, and did a lot of thinking. Later, I started an involved conversation with Gina that we’ll finish later. Then John and I went for sushi at our favorite sushi joint. Right now I’m watching mindless television and getting ready to snuggle and fall asleep on the couch with john. I am slowly starting to feel back to normal after a very hectic couple of weeks. I’m definitely someone who enjoys balance in my days and when I don’t have that for awhile I start to feel fragmented and disjointed. I love days like today when my tank is empty and I start to refuel it with what fills me emotionally, and spiritually.
Bella is losing her coat. It’s such an intense shedding that we’re both wondering if we should be concerned. She’s acting normally, though, and in fact, we both agree that she’s actually a bit more frisky than usual. Still, it’s unusual that she would be shedding this excessively with the weather turning cooler. It’s a hairy mess around here….she’s lucky she’s so damn cute and sweet and adorable.
